The exciting investment enables growth in the packaging sector with a B1 UV Litho press at its Scottish Packaging Operation
We are pleased to announce the £2.0m investment in Manroland 5 Colour B1 UV Litho Packaging Press for our Packaging Centre of excellence at Bellshill, Scotland. The press was installed in the autumn of 2018 and is now fully operational on the site producing high-quality UV litho print for the packaging sector. The press has excellent colour management and built-in controls that effectively scans every 8th sheet to control consistent colour through the run. The press is a high-performance model that can hit up to 16,000 sheets per hour which is ideal for the food, drinks and retail packaging sectors. The UV press has the capability to print on paper and board up to 1mm thick or 1000 microns. The Manroland UV press can print directly onto metallic substrates and has 3 interdek drying units to ensure a rich, premium and quality print is achieved. The press is ideal for cartons, wet glue labels and tube wraps.
